Erling Haaland

Manchester United proposed move for RB Salzburg’s striker Erling Haaland has gained massive pace after coach Jesse Marsch admitted that the player will leave his team sooner rather than later.

The RB Salzburg manager told CNN that it would be difficult stopping the player from leaving based on the number of clubs interested in his services.

He revealed that he is in touch with the player’s dad and they are considering the best option for the teenager.

He, however, reiterated his readiness to ensuring that the youngster’s goalscoring performances aren’t affected by the transfer rumors surrounding his future.

Barcelona, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and other European giants are all monitoring his progress with his Austrian side.

Meanwhile, it is said that Chris Smalling’s agent is currently in Italy to negotiate a permanent transfer deal with Roma on behalf of his client.

Roma is looking at the prospect of signing the Red Devils loanee on a permanent deal in January and his representative is set to begin talks with the Serie A side.

The England international center-back looks reborn since his loan switch to Italy and Roma are willing to have him beyond this campaign.

It should be recalled that United had earlier rejected Roma’s £13m offer as they are only ready to listen to a £15m transfer bid.

According to Fox Sports Asia, Manchester United are keen to do a deal for Spanish international Fabian Ruiz this month as they try to ease their midfield worries before the business end of the current season.

Pogba has been struggling with an ankle problem all season, while Scotland international Scott McTominay has a knee injury.

Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has been a key performer for underperforming Italian Serie A outfit since joining from La Liga club Real Betis at the start of the last campaign for £30m.

Jadon Sancho

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has approved the multi-million pounds pursuit of Borussia Dortmund player Jadon Sancho according to The Metro.

Recent reports had claimed that Chelsea are in talks to sign Jadon Sancho who is an England international who made his debut for the Three Lions against Croatia towards the end of 2018 in what was a UEFA Nations League game.

Apart from Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are also interested in Jadon Sancho who could cost up to £120m.

Chelsea have a good business relationship with Borussia Dortmund and that could work in their favour as they try to prise Jadon Sancho from the German Bundesliga club.

Jadon Sancho has scored nine goals and nine assists in 15 games in the league to further show his importance to Borussia Dortmund who sold Christian Pulisic to Chelsea in a £57m deal last year.

Chelsea had agreed a deal with the Germans for Christian Pulisic in January 2019 but the American international didn’t join them until last summer.

Moussa Dembele

The Premier League trio of Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have been given a big transfer boost in their pursuit of Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

According to French publication L’Equipe, Lyon have agreed a deal to sign a striker from the Spanish La Liga and this new development has given the aforementioned British clubs small hope in their quest to sign Dembele.

The statement was before Lyon agreed a loan deal to sign Karl Toko Ekambi on loan with the obligation to sign him permanently in a £17m deal.

Depay has been injured since the end of last year and the Netherlands is not expected to return to full fitness anytime soon.

Moussa Dembele has been the go-to man for Lyon this season especially in the absence of the injury-stricken Depay.

He is the topscorer in the French top flight with 11 goals this season.

Amuda Segun



Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has disclosed that no club wanted to sign the defensive duo of Andy Robertson and Joel Matip when the club swooped in to sign them.

Klopp told BeIN Sports that clubs were not willing to sign Andy Robertson in 2017 when Hull City suffered relegation from the Premier League.

Andy Robertson was not renowned for his defensive work as a left-back while he was an Hull City player but the 25-year-old has improved in that aspect at Liverpool who paid just £8m to sign him.

Jurgen Klopp also talked about Joel Matip and how Liverpool had a free run to sign him from Schalke 04 in the German league on a free transfer in 2016.

Joel Matip was in fine form for Liverpool at the start of the season before his knee injury.

The Cameroonian international has not played for Liverpool since the Manchester United game at Old Trafford in October.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stoked the fire ahead of the Premier League trip to arch-rivals Liverpool in one of the games of the season.

Solskjaer ignited the fury of Liverpool fans after he said that Manchester United won’t go without a league title for three decades like what’s obtainable with the Reds at the moment.

Manchester United are the only team to take points off arch-rivals Liverpool in the Premier League this season and they can put spanner in the works of their title challenge when they visit Anfield on Sunday.

Thomas Lemar

Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar has made a decision on his future in the Spanish league finally according to the newest reports coming out of his native France.

Thomas Lemar has struggled for form at Atletico Madrid since he joined the Spanish La Liga giants at the start of the 2018/19 season and that led to the transfer rumours of him moving away from the Spaniards with the likes of Arsenal, Lyon and Tottenham Hotspur interested in him.

Recent reports even talked about the possibility of a swap deal involving Thomas Lemar and Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.

French international Lacazette came close to signing for Atletico Madrid before his move to Arsenal from Lyon and he would have signed for the Rojiblancos if not for the FIFA transfer ban imposed on them in the summer of 2017.

It was not really surprising that Lacazette was linked with an Atletico Madrid transfer again in a swap deal that will see Lemar join the Gunners but that won’t be possible after the former AS Monaco man made a decision on his future at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.

According to Le10Sport from France, Thomas Lemar has decided to stay at Atletico Madrid who paid £51m to sign him from AS Monaco in 2018.

Shkrodan Mustafi

According to The Sun, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has told defender Shkodran Mustafi that he won’t stand in his way if the German wants to leave the Gunners in this window.

Apart from Mustafi, Arsenal have just three centre back options namely Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, David Luiz and Rob Holding.

Calum Chambers has been the best centre back at Arsenal this season but the England international won’t play again until next season after his knee surgery last month.

He sustained the injury during the home game against Chelsea in December 2019.

Another centre back options Kostantinos Mavropanos has joined Nurnberg in the German Bundesliga II on loan for the rest of this campaign.
